Services at Tikvah Israel are patterned after the outlay of the Tabernacle. Imagine what a trip to the Tabernacle would have been like! These trips took place at the great feasting times in Israel, and there was excitement and anticipation of the food and festivities that was at the end of the journey!

... we arrange our service based on the pattern of the tabernacle ...

Imagine arriving at the Tabernacle where men and women and children were corporately lifting up the name of Jehovah in the outer courts of praise! Preparing the way and proclaiming how great is our God! (Through Yeshua, we can ALL now go past the outer courts! Read Galatians 3:28-29)

Of course, only the priests could enter the Inner Court that contained the Altar of Sacrifice, where sacrifices were made as an atonement for the sins of the people, and the Laver out of which the washing with water cleansed and make one acceptable for the next level. (Through Yeshua, we can ALL now go past the inner courts! Read I Peter 2:9)

The wonder of the beauty and craftsmanship of the articles of worship so carefully laid out in the Holy Place shows us what is important to Yahweh. The Lamp Stand - Jesus is the Light of the Word, the Shew Bread - Jesus is the Bread of Life, and the Table of Incense - Worship is a holy fragrance to God! (Through Yeshua, we can ALL now freely worship in the Holy Place. Read Hebrews 10:19-23)

And the the most precious part of all - The Holy of Holies - where only the High Priest who had made atonement for his own sins could intercede for the nation once a year. This final part contained the Ark of the Covenant and the Mercy Seat. (Through Yeshua, we can ALL now abide in God's Holy presence and receive abundant grace and mercy! Read Hebrews 4:14-16)
